Building The Education State
Mernda Central P-12 and Mernda Park Primary opened in 2017 and had a successful first year. Both of these schools have first class sporting facilities including competition-grade gyms, as well as performing arts theatres and cooking areas.
They also have multi-purpose spaces to be used by the YMCA after school hours to provide before and after school care as well as a range of community services and programs.
Mernda Park Primary also has an Integrated Early Learning Centre on site to facilitate transitions between early childhood learning and primary school.

Two New Tech Schools
Banyule – to be based at Melbourne Polytechnic Greensborough campus
Whittlesea – to be based at Melbourne Polytechnic Epping campus. Unlike tech schools of the past, these new training opportunities will be offered alongside regular schooling, so students don’t have to choose between the two and will allow students to get hands-on technical training while they continue their studies. These Tech Schools will use leading edge technology to deliver applied STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education, ensuring that students get the vital STEM skills they need for the jobs of tomorrow
